Used Car Safety Report

The Ford Territory has been awarded a 5 star Driver Protection rating in the latest Used Car Safety Rating (UCSR) report. UCSR are reported annually by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). Ratings are estimated from data on real crashes reported to police in Australia and New Zealand and provide a very high level of confidence. The UCSR report classifies cars according to where their rating lies in relation to a best performance benchmark. The Driver Protection rating measures the relative safety of cars in preventing serious injury to their own drivers in crashes.

The Ford Territory also received a protection for other road users rating in the UCSR report. The protection for other road users rating indicates the level of protection that a vehicle provides for other unprotected road users (other car drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists) in the event of a crash.

The Ford SZ Territory is available from May 2011. This rating is based on crash tests conducted by ANCAP in 2006 and technical information provided about the updated model. The SZ Territory can be expected to provide better chest protection than the 2006 model. It also has improved knee protection due to a driver knee airbag.

The Territory scored 12.57 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. There was a moderate risk of serious chest injury for the driver and passenger. Each had a slight risk of lower leg injury.

The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and a further two points in the optional pole test.


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags, head-protecting side curtains and a driver knee airbag are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. A reversing camera is available on some variants.

Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.

Frontal Offset Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 12.57 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 4 pts
Chest 1.14 pts
Upper Legs 4 pts
Lower Legs 3.422 pts

Note that chest protection was rated as "weak" in the 2006 rating. ANCAP has simplified the injury rating and this level of chest protection is now rated "marginal".

The passenger compartment held its shape well in the offset crash test. The accelerator pedal moved rearwards by 57mm and upwards 12mm. By design, the brake pedal hinge separated during the crash, allowing the brake pedal to swing freely. This reduces the risk of lower leg injury. The feet were protected from footwell deformation by a laminated insert under the carpet. The steering wheel hub moved forwards 61mm, upwards 23mm and sideways 7mm. The front ("A") pillar moved 8mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash all doors could be opened with normal effort.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. There were no deductions for knee hazards. The passenger's head was also cushioned by an airbag.

Side Impact Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Side Impact* 16 pts (out of 16)
Head 4 pts
Chest 4 pts
Abdomen 4 pts
Pelvis 4 pts

The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the Territory. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award full score for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test.

ANCAP conducted a pole test of a Territory with head-protecting side curtains and the vehicle earned the maximum two points.

Central areas of the bonnet provided fair protection for the child and adult head. The bumper provided good protection for the knee, however the front edge of the bonnet provided poor protection.
